NHS  Volunteer Responders

NHS Volunteer Responders have helped people in England to stay safe during the pandemic completing 2 million tasks.

They can help anyone who lives in England and who needs to self-isolate for any reason. They can also help people who choose to stay at home as much as possible because they are cautious about going out during the coronavirus outbreak.

Volunteers help people:

  • avoid busy places by collecting their shopping, medicines and other important items
  • have regular contact with other people by making regular friendly phone calls
  • get to medical appointments by giving lifts.
